A five-part documentary series dubbed ‘Undertaker: The Last Ride‘ is hitting our screens tomorrow, Monday, May 11 via the WWE Network.
A rare and candid insight into not just the character but the man himself, this series takes fans into the personal world of arguably the ‘greatest WWE wrestler of all time.’
The Undertaker, or Mark Calaway as he is known as out of the ring, has long been incredibly mysterious both on and off-screen, and the 53-year-old icon has always intentionally kept a low profile in between matches. Until now…
The documentary begins by covering what the industry thought would be his last professional match back in 2017 against Roman Reigns. This episode, entitled The Greatest Fear, shows the camera crews following the event and the fallout. But what we thought was a farewell was just the beginning of a new chapter as Calaway himself begins: “I want them thinking, ‘This guy has got a lot left in the tank.’ If I can leave with that, I’ll be content. I can walk away,” he says. “I say that. But I’ve been saying that for a long time.”
Viewers are treated to look back at his imposing 30-year long career from when he first stepped into the ring back in 1990, to his crushing 21-match winning streak at Wrestle Mania. We hear from other stalwarts of the scene incising Stone Cold Steve Austin who asks: “Who would have thought that one man could make so many WrestleManias to even be able to put himself in the conversation to even make that happen?”
Offering an insightful and sometimes grim look at an iconic fighter and how the industry has ruled his life, Undertaker: The Last Ride is sure to keep fans hooked and wanting more – such is the compelling pull of the great spectacle that we call WWE.
